Funimation Entertainment, the go-to studio for extraordinary anime, raised the bar once again with the release of FunimationNow for the Amazon Fire TV, an anime streaming service app designed specifically for this platform. FunimationNow subscribers across the U.S. and the U.K. can now enjoy Funimation's extensive library of hit anime TV series and movies, both subbed and dubbed, in ad-free HD streaming on the Amazon Fire TV. Titles available include new breakouts like "My Hero Academia" and "Dimension W," and fan favorites like "Attack on Titan" and "Fairy Tail."

"We are thrilled to partner with Amazon to enable more anime fans to experience our content on their TVs," said Mike DuBoise, Chief Operating Officer of Funimation.

Stay tuned- there is a lot more to come this year."
